HC Deb 04 June 1964 vol 695 c188W
45. Mr. Lubbock

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how much he estimates it would cost to divide Pentonville Prison into four self-contained units, as described in the proposal a copy of which has been sent to him.

Mr. Brooke

I can give no firm estimate, but the cost would be very high indeed, for the problem of dividing Pentonville into four self-contained units would be far more intractable than the author of the proposal has realised, and the constructional work entailed far more extensive.
